A post-grad psych student just hoping to give back. If you need to work anything out, feel free to throw me a message. I work on the premise of no judgements and I'm not easily shocked, most of what I do is pointed questions. I don't offer direct advice unless absolutely necessary as the helpfulness of this is ofen temporary. One-on-one chats guaranteed.
 

Sessions will last approximately one hour, long-term support is available.

Solved my life 🌷
He was very understanding. He took the time to really listen and ask very helpful questions.
Top!
Arkelight is very helpful and patient . I feel a lot better after talking to him . He deserves the best award .
Arkelight is a very attentive listener. Responds timely and it is very encouraging to get into a deep and open conversation with him. I am a private person, but felt very at ease on my first talk to share a fair amount with him.
His responses were both professional and sympathetic.
Thank you for your time.
Great listener.

A great listener, with patience and understanding. Very easy to talk to as well.
Awesome to talk to, really gets it, if you feel like no one understands, or alone, talk to Arkelight.
Very professional. Almost like a therapist.
I don't know what to type, but I did feel that through the entire conversation he was engaged and interested and responded relevantly. He seemed genuinely interested in helping and provided some resources based on the conversation.
So helpful and intellectual.
